Contour Cut by SUMMA nv, automates the process of cutting out dye sublimation printed pieces of fabric or textile both quickly and accurately, automatically compensating for any distortions or stretches that occur in unstable or stretchy textiles - Exactly the type of fabrics that are used in sportswear, for example.
Material is automatically unrolled and transported onto the laser cutting machine using our next generation conveyor system.
State of the art camera recognition is used to pinpoint registration marks printed on your material. The marks can be accurately read by our laser system and the position, scale and deformation of the printed material will be compensated due to the intelligent analysis of the registration marks. This means that when the laser cuts your fabric all the pieces will exit the laser cutting conveyor exactly the correct size and shape.
As laser cutting is non-contact, there is no drag on the material and no blades to change. High speed loop servo motors ensure precise camera mapping and accurate cut lines with minimal user interaction. Simply collect the pieces as they exit the machine, this gives the Contour Cut system a major advantage over traditional garment cutting methods.
